The Rev. Lt. Colonel Chaplain Mark Lee of Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio preached during Veterans Day ceremonies at the Celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Chaplain Lee brilliantly described the Christian use of power and authority to be used for the benefit of those he serves. “Our gifts and talents were given for the purpose of serving others.” Like the unknown widow who gave all she had with the two copper coins, no matter what our gifts are, when we give of them God can use them for good.
Chaplain Lee said that military experience teaches the Soldier, Sailor, Airman and the Marine how to serve something that is greater than themselves.
